Woodpeckers Class

Key Stage 1 – Year 2

Children carry on their Key Stage 1 education in the Woodpeckers Class, where we continue to emphasise enjoyment of learning through our Creative Curriculum, covering all the core areas of the National Curriculum to establish a good foundation to take them into Key Stage 2 (by the time they reach Year 3).

In the morning the Woodpeckers class focus their work on Literacy and Maths and in the afternoons they look at a weekly subject such as Music, Technology or History etc. within the overall topic area for that half term. They also have weekly PE sessions with a qualified Sports Coach.
